Judges' Comments

Warren Gibson
Lifted and pure. Ripe cassis notes. Very firm tannins Drying bitter tannins with the dish

Meg Brodtmann
Cooked, jammy fruit profile with some sour cherry and blackberry. On the palate, the wine is a little cooked and lacking fruit with big, drying tannins and a hot finish. The wine still appears hot and drying with the food.

Dr Ken Dobler
Brilliant bright crimson colour. Deliciously seductive nose with blackberry and brambly notes complexed with some tobacco leaf nuances. Generous palate with complex flavours and exceptional length. This savoury style is an excellent marriage to highly proteinaceous food.

Brent Marris
Lovely ripe slight black current notes on the nose, following through to the palate. Nice richness on mid palate with the frame work appearing to be built around lovely ripe skin tannin and integrated oak. A great match with the beef cheeks. Tannin and fruit hold in there together beautifully.

Ying Tan
Deep dark red. Floral, slightly minty blackcurrant, pencil shavings nose. Full dry, tannic, finely structured creamy structure, pencil shavings red fruit, blackcurrant, creamy oak, balanced. Dry pencil shavings and redfruit finish. Long. Tailing hot. Beef Cheek softens tannins, emphasizes fruit.

Sue Bastian
Magenta and very opaque. Intense Ribena. Earthy and slightly dusty. Similar notes on the palate with creamy butter and furry tannin. Not overly complex. The wine flavours slightly dominate the food.
